CHIROPRACTIC, A MANUAL HEALTH PROFESSION

Chiropractic is a health care profession specialized in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of neuromusculoskeletal disorders. It treats mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, particularly of the spine, and also focuses on biomechanical and neurophysiological repercussions on the body.
In addition, chiropractic takes into account biopsychosocial factors and their impacts on health.
Chiropractic is recognised by health authorities in France and in more than 40 countries around the world.

PATIENT-CENTRED TREATMENT

Chiropractors are specialists in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of neuromusculoskeletal disorders. They treat mechanical pathologies, whether real or perceived, of the musculoskeletal system, especially pathologies of the spine. They can also treat their biomechanical and neurophysiological effects. Chiropractic treatment takes into account biopsychosocial factors that may impact health.

ESSENTIAL MANUAL TREATMENTS

Chiropractic addresses the entire neuromusculoskeletal system and any other related tissue. Practitioners use conservative treatment methods and primarily manual techniques including chiropractic adjustments, specific joint manipulations of the spine, the hips and peripheral joints.
